the fight was close, i didn't give a damn who won it because both guys are my kind of fighter. i thought barrera would have the edge going into it, i think i stated a draw wasn't out the question in the fight either. in a hard fight to score there was no clear winner although i had 115-113 barrera, i wouldn't have been to diapointed if marquez got it by the same score. but come on, 7 rounds on one card thats a judge scored a 9 round swing from me and although im no judge i know how to score fights fairly.HUGOBOX said:Les't cut the BS Marquez smacked Barrerra in the mouth just like I did my girlfriend I saw the fight twice, Barrerra did'nt get robbed,he just did'nt close the show like he should have and thats what you get ,nobody at HBO said a damm thing, I say let them do it again
PrettyBoyFloyd said:I do not understand how so many people including every one of the commentators were baffled at the horrible scoring and nothing is done about it. Is there no justice that goes along with something like this? I may sound crazy but if 99 percent of fight fans saw this fight at around a 2 or 3 round decision/draw how can BOXING let this bullshat judging keep happening. They can't just turn a cold shoulder at 3 people doing the opposite of what their job is meant to be.
Also.......this is why many people will not watch/buy in to boxing. I have tried turning many people on to my favorite sport but they see fights like this one and decide that it is either rigged or just bs. For a first time PPV watcher seeing the scorecards like that I'm sure it would be their last PPV or even boxing fight at that. Something needs to be done, or I may even start to look away insert a tear right HERE.
